West Sacramento leaders hope boom in new restaurants helps revitalize city

More new restaurants are opening up in West Sacramento, and city leaders are hopeful it will revitalize the city and bring in more people to explore, shop, dine and live.Franquette opened up last week in the Bridge District. It’s a new French-inspired wine bar and cafe serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. The restaurant also has indoor and outdoor seating that offers a great view of the Riverfront. The owners of Franquette aren’t new to the restaurant scene. They’re also the creators of Canon East Sacramento — which has a Michelin rating. Teriyaki Madness is being renovated and should open in the next couple of weeks. About a mile away, on Third Street, two more new businesses have sprouted up in locations that were left empty during the pandemic. The Midway Bar and Grill is now open for business. Besides more dining options, the mayor of West Sacramento said the boom in restaurants is good for the local economy.
